Ideal Power Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ideal Power Inc. ("Ideal Power" or the "Company") /zigman2/quotes/200087540/composite IPWR -3.37% , pioneering the development and commercialization of highly efficient and broadly patented B-TRAN(TM) bidirectional power switches, reported results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

"We added several market leading companies to our test and evaluation program, including large global companies in the electric vehicle (EV), renewable energy, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and circuit breaker markets, as well as smaller, innovative companies and research universities," stated Dan Brdar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ideal Power.

"We are now on our final major milestone under the U.S. Navy/Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) program under our partnership with Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI), and recently began work with DTI under a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) to develop a B-TRAN(TM) alternating current (AC) solid state circuit breaker (SSCB) for use in utility transmission and distribution systems. With a strong balance sheet and highly talented and capable team, we believe we are well positioned to complete a successful year of milestone achievement and to continue to execute on our plan to commercialize B-TRAN(TM) in the second half of 2022."

Key Third Quarter and Recent Operational Highlights

  • Announced several B-TRAN(TM) test and evaluation program participants including:

  • Partnered with DTI, under a Phase I SBIR grant from the DOE, to develop a B-TRAN(TM)-enabled low-loss AC SSCB. Ideal Power recently completed the first milestone under this program.

  • Achieved another major milestone under the NAVSEA program with the completion of the most recent wafer fabrication run.

  • Recently began the final wafer fabrication run under the NAVSEA program. Ideal Power will continue to provide program support through the demonstration of the B-TRAN(TM) enabled DC SSCB in mid-2022.

Third Quarter Financial Results

  • Grant revenue was $121,028 in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $147,787 in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Grant revenue was $447,794 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $154,302 in the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
